Randy BectonA Phone Call of Love, by Randy Becton   Real Audio

    A story recently touched my heart. It’s a story of a mother who persisted in her love for a wayward daughter all the way to her death.

No matter what, she still loved her.
    A precious Christian woman died recently. She has done a tremendous work publicly for the Kingdom of God. Yet there was a private ministry that she carried on that few people knew. Every night, for many years, she called one of her daughters. This child has been a long time prodigal. Although this daughter was raised in a loving Christian environment, in her subsequent adult years, she has had very little interest in God. But mom kept calling, letting her know that no matter what, she still loved her.

    Now, suddenly, the phone calls have ended. How do suppose that daughter is feeling now? How she must miss those calls! Do you realize that someone has been calling you everyday? It’s a voice from heaven. Jesus Christ is calling to you: “Are you listening? Can you hear me?”

    He loves you so much! Far more than the love of a mother for a daughter. Jesus says, “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and I will come in and eat with him and he with me.”

    Don’t miss the most important call of your life!
